More About the Author

JEFFERY C. OLSEN is a best selling author and inspires audiences across the country with his intriguing personal story of perseverance and inner strength. In 1997, Jeff experienced a horrific automobile accident which inflicted multiple life threatening injuries, including crushing both his legs. His left leg was amputated above the knee. The most devastating outcome of the accident was the loss of his wife and youngest son, both killed instantly. At that time, Jeff had profound experiences, which deepened his spirituality and gave him insights and gifts not common in today's world. He found the courage to carry on, heal, care for his living son and eventually thrive in his career and community contributions. Jeff has since remarried and adopted two more boys.

Professionally Olsen is a conceptual thinker, a proven team leader, and a die-hard brand enthusiast. He brings vision and passion to everything he does. With accolades from the New York One Show, the Clio Awards and Communication Arts, Jeff takes his place among the lynch pins of his industry. Couple his creative recognition with appearances in Forbes Magazine, the Inc. 500 and an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist Award and you have a winning combination of talent and tenacity.

This touched my soul, I realize that just because I hadn't suffered a loss like Jeff I indeed have suffered losses. The way Jeff explained how he felt on page 78 spoke to my soul ..I cried as I claimed my own inner peace and healing at the hands of this very inspired book. I was also able to see that pure love does not hold tightly it allows freedom. Thank you thank you thank you Jeff for sharing .

i devoured this book in a few hours. There are so many lessons in the twists and turns of Jeff's experiences. Like all of us, he has to deal with the curve balls that life throws at us and like all of us, he stumbles and falls. What seems at one point to be perfection can slowly turn into shattering reality. I felt Jeff's pangs of love as he discovered his future wife, his anxieties over his feelings of inadequacy, his frustration with his children, his inner search for meaning and the deep spiritual yearnings. This is a book that can touch any heart and lead to life transforming perspective. His book joins a chorus of similar messages that are coming from the "other side". The message that we create our own joy through choice, that we are loved unconditionally, that we are never forgotten and that mistakes are a valuable part of our spiritual evolution ring loudly from its pages. Highly recommended.

Mr. Olsen picked up where he left off and fills in the gaps that many wondered about after his his first ground breaking book, "I Knew Their Hearts". If you haven't read that one first you should.

In this work, Jeff shows an even more tender and humbler side in dealing with his budding marriage to his *new sweetheart Tonya, the struggle that conflicted him in losing his precious Tamara, suddenly and tragically and finally being able to move forward in his courtship with Tonya, only after having a heavenly, supernal affirmation from his beloved Tamara.

Mr.Olsen is privy to many dreams, visions,and promptings that help him realize that joy is meant to be experienced here in this sphere of our soul's existence. He has been able to pierce the veil and know the joy, wisdom and happiness of Griffin and Tam, bringing him comfort and solace.

In this work Jeff is vulnerable enough to let us to know that his marriage and family life wasn't always daffodils and butterflies, (actually both marriages) and how through it all if we ( husbands) humble ourselves, learn empathy, and actually listen to our spouse's advice with open hearts and minds -it often leads to a balanced, successful God like relationship: as God intended marriage to be.

Another highlight in this work is the co-survivor Spencer Olsen, who was inadvertently left out in the cold unbeknownst to Jeff as Jeff was wrapped up in his own healing, understanding and tiptoeing around needed conversations with his grieving son.

Like another reviewer said, if you haven't read Jeff's first book, "I Knew Their Hearts," you should. It's just as beautifully written as this book. I'm no night owl, but I started reading this book at 10 pm, and literally couldn't stop. It broke my heart yet inspired me beyond my ability to put into words. Jeff's journey is incredible, and I'm thankful he has shared it with all of us.

Jeff shares his journey from real heartfelt anguish to his exquisite joy. He is bare to the bones real about his personal pain and insecurities, giving many (who choose) an honest look into their very souls and hearts. It is only from such honesty that one can heal. I have never read a book that has touched me so deeply and profoundly. Tamara's message to Jeff on page 38 is a profound and beautiful look into Heaven that can live in each of our hearts as we choose love and to judge not. I shed many tears of pain and joy. Thank you Jeff, for having the courage to share the depths of your soul as you have. There are so many broken hearts that deserve to heal. In sharing his journey of healing, Jeff has illuminated a path for others to do the same. Jeff's story has touched the very depths of my soul and assisted in healing my broken heart. I will read this book again and again. --Bonnie Jackson
